Step 4: Copy the Files

The next step is copying the necessary files from the BIND name server to the Windows 2000 server. You’ll need to copy the name server configuration file, called the boot file (which is usually /etc/named.boot) and all the zone data files for which the BIND server is a primary master. The zone data files will be in the directory specified by the directory directive in the boot file. The files should be copied to the %SystemRoot%\system32\dns directory on the Windows 2000 server. The named.boot file goes in that directory, too, but you need to rename it to just boot. One final note: only the primary, secondary, and cache directives are supported. Any other directives are ignored.
